ATTENTION PLEASE! Although the Court of Concordia fund raising campaign is now over, there is still a need for funds to help improve the functionality and curriculum of the school. SOTC has received a request for funds as follows:
Please prayerfully consider making a donation toward these lessons. Checks can be submitted to the office staff.
The new name of the merged
congregation is: Shadow of the Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church.
We pray that God continues to guide
and bless this congregation as He has both congregations during this merger
time. We must always keep the cross of Christ before us as we unite in worship
Election of officers will take place in November
You can now make out your offering checks to Shadow of the Cross Lutheran Church. Please direct any questions to the Finance committee.
The time for the Saturday night service remains at 6 p.m.
The time for the Sunday morning service is 9:45 a.m.

Shadow of the Cross offers children two Sunday School sessions to meet their family’s Sunday morning schedule.
The first opportunity occurs during the 9:45 a.m. worship service. Children are dismissed following Confession and Absolution.
The second opportunity starts at 11 a.m., during the adult Bible class that follows the worship service, in the Sunday School rooms. Children are taught Bible stories, with the aid of Veggie Tales. Crafts and playtime are also offered.
MOTOR CITY MEALS is an organization that goes out to feed the homeless. Our own Cheryl Johnson makes up meals for them to distribute. They feed about 60 people a week. If you would like to help, they could use the following items:
* Cases of bottled water
* Snacks (granola bars, fruit bars, cookies, crackers, etc.)
* Meat for Cheryl to cook
* Men’s and women’s underwear
* Sample-size hygiene items
* Feminine hygiene products
Cash is always accepted, and tax donation forms are available. You can place your donations in the plastic bin near the bottle collection can (however, please place any meat donations in the refrigerator and label the package “MCM”). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Cheryl – she’d be happy to talk to you about this special ministry.
St. Pauls just released a new online giving system today! Off to the right of the church website, you’ll notice you can click “Give Now.” That link will let you submit your offering via Credit Card / Debit Card or setup re-occurring transfers from a bank account. We’re trying to draw attention to some outstanding expenses the church has and hope that this will assist with those.
We also hope this brings convenience to our parishioners and would ask that you check it out today!
